H&M Summer Dresses FTW


I binge shop at H&M.  I'll go a couple of months without buying anything and then place a big order: big being 3 dress and 4 tops on sale, which i don't think the whole lot came to more than 60 quid. But yes, a nice bundle of goodies arrived which i was most impressed with. If you've shopped at H&M before you will know their sizes are a little bizarre. Bizarre in that there is no continuity. At.All.
But i took a wild stab at it and everything turned out well (this time, i've also been known to send 90% back!) 
So in my bundle of goodies came this cotton weave, striped dress. It's just so perfect for a summery day. It's light and airy and has stripes. How beautiful would it look on say, the island of Zakynthos, amongst the white washed walls and the little blue shutters. Perfect is what it would look. But alas i am not going anywhere remotely close to the Greek islands this year. Its another British summer for me. But at least i have pretty dresses like this to make me feel better.
Also in that order i got a couple more shirt dresses, which i am more than sure you will be seeing soon, because as we all probably know by now, i am a leetle obsessed with shirt dresses. That is until the UK has a freak heatwave and sleeves seem like torture. But once those high temperatures inevitably dip back down i will be ready with my shirt dresses once again. 

I paired my stripe dress with my comfy-hardly-left-my-feet Boden lace-up flats(which are on sale!) and my gorgeous Navy Radley bag for a smarter summer look. I reckon the dress would still look fab thrown over a bikini (not on me however) with some little sandals and tan bag.
Then of course i finished off with a super favourite necklace from the shop: The Colour Pop Collar. So much fun in a necklace. Orange, yellows and blue, its like a party for my neck, Hahaa!

  4. I like to shop at H&M. They have good designs. I just bought a shirtdress in a crepe poly fabric, actually I bought two -one white, one an olive brown- because they were marked off to $20 each and can easily go from summer into fall. There are several shops on my regular shopping beat so I take the tact of dropping in almost weekly. If they get good stuff it doesn't stick around in my size.

  5. I don't shop much at H&M since their online return policy is not so customer friendly and I rarely go to the mall. This is a perfect dress for the summer!
